A door is a block that can be used as a barrier that can be opened by hand or with redstone.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Wooden doors can be broken with anything, but axes are fastest. A pickaxe is needed to obtain an iron door by breaking it. All doors drop themselves if they no longer have a block beneath them that can support them.

A door is removed and drops itself as an item:

  • if the block beneath the door is moved, removed, or destroyed
  • if a piston tries to push the door (trying to pull a door does nothing) or moves a block into its space

Natural generation[edit]

Doors generate in some generated structures, forming the entrances to the majority of buildings. Doors do not generate in zombie villages.

Usage[edit]

Wooden doors can be opened and closed by players, villagers, wandering traders[BE only], vindicators[JE only], and piglins. Wooden doors can be broken by all variants of zombies (except drowned) as well as zombified piglins in Hard difficulty, and vindicators in Normal and Hard difficulty.

Iron doors can only be opened with redstone power.

Doors can be obtained by crafting, and can be found in villages, strongholds, shipwrecks, and woodland mansions.

Placement[edit]

Doors must be "attached" to a block beneath them. To place a door, use a door item while pointing at the top of the block it should be attached to. A door can be attached to:

More information about placement on transparent blocks can be found at Opacity/Placement.

When placed, a door occupies the side of the block facing the player, or behind a player if placed in the player's own space.

By default, a door's "hinge" appears on the side of the half of the block that the player pointed at when placing and its "handle" on the opposite side‌[Java Edition only], but the hinge is forced to other side by:

  • placing a door besides another door (creating a double door where both doors open away from each other)
  • placing a door between a full solid and any opaque block (top or bottom), making the hinge appear to attach to the solid block.

Behavior[edit]

Water and lava flow around doors. Lava can create fire in air blocks next to wood doors as if the wood doors were flammable, but the doors do not burn (and cannot be burned by other methods either, except throwing them into lava).

Mobs can still spawn in a space occupied by a door.

The sound of opening and closing of a door can be heard up to 16 blocks away, like most mob sounds.

When placed using the /setblock command, only one half of a door is placed, because doors are actually two separate blocks. The lower half still works, but with graphical bugs, and the upper half does not. Redstone cannot be used because it updates the half, breaking it. The upper half does not drop anything when broken, the lower half drops a normal door. This implies that the upper half is dependent on the lower.

Barrier[edit]

A door can be used as a switchable barrier to entity movement. Although primarily used to block movement by mobs and players, a door can also be used to control the movement of boats (for example, a door placed in a two-wide water flow stops a boat when perpendicular to the flow, but allow it to move again when parallel), items and minecarts (a door can stop a falling item or minecart, then allow it to drop again when the door moves), etc.

In Java Edition, doors provide a breathable space if placed underwater. In Bedrock Edition, doors in water source blocks are waterlogged and do not displace water source blocks.

Doors are 0.1875 (316) blocks thick. The rest of a door's space can be moved through freely. A door occupies two block spaces and both halves normally act as a single barrier, although doors can be opened or closed with a player or mob occupying the bottom block of the door,[1] in which case the player can jump up to land on the bottom half of the door and then again to land on top of the door.

To open or close a wooden door, use the Use Item/Place Block control. When a door opens or closes, it immediately changes its orientation without affecting anything in the space it "swings through". Moving doors do not push entities the way that pistons do.

Villagers, wandering traders,‌[BE only] vindicators[JE only], and piglins can open and close wooden doors when pathfinding.

Some zombies can break wooden doors in Hard difficulty. Zombies have a 5% chance to spawn with the ability to break doors. Vindicators spawned from a raid in Normal and Hard difficulty can also break wooden doors, but they do so only to reach targeted players, villagers, or wandering traders. Some vindicators may sometimes open a wooden door instead of breaking it.‌[Java Edition only] Both zombies and vindicators attempt to break wooden doors only when in their "closed" state, even if a door is placed so that its "open" state blocks access (for example, by facing sideways when placing a door so that it allows passage when closed and blocks passage when open).

Iron doors can be opened only with redstone power (a button, a redstone circuit, etc.), except in Bedrock Edition, where zombies can break them down.[2] Villagers, wandering traders, evokers, vindicators, and zombies can activate an iron door by stepping on a pressure plate or by triggering a tripwire.

Redstone component[edit]

Both wood and iron doors can be controlled with redstone power.

A door is a redstone mechanism component and can be activated by:

All methods of activating a door can be applied to either the top or bottom parts of a door.

When activated, a door immediately rotates around its hinge side to its open state. When deactivated, a door immediately returns to its closed state.

An activated wood door can still be closed by a player or villager and does not re-open until it receives a new activation signal (if a door has been closed "by hand", it still needs to be deactivated and then reactivated to open by redstone).

Fuel[edit]

Wooden doors can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1 item per door.

Block data[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, a door specifies its hinge side in the block data of its upper block, and its facing and opened status in the block data of its lower block.

Upper Door
Bits Description
0x1 0 if hinge is on the left (the default), 1 if on the right
0x2 0 if unpowered, 1 if powered
0x4 (unused)
0x8 Always 1 for the upper part of a door.
Lower Door
Bits Description
0x1
0x2
Two bits storing a value from 0 to 3 specifying the direction the door is facing:
  • 0: Facing east
  • 1: Facing south
  • 2: Facing west
  • 3: Facing north
0x4 0 if the entire door is closed, 1 if open.
0x8 Always 0 for the lower part of a door.
